In a conversation with Marci Wiser, Twisted Sister icon Dee Snider revealed another detail about the healing process of AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson hearing loss which caused him to leave during the band’s Rock or Bust tour.
As you might remember, during the Rock or Bust World Tour, AC/DC singer Brian Johnson was urged by his doctors to stop touring immediately otherwise he would be risking total hearing loss. To complete the remaining shows in the band’s tour, Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose was recruited to replace Brian Johnson.
Particularly during the last few months, the rumors about the new AC/DC album and the following tour gained steam which made the AC/DC fans quite excited about the possible new projects. Twisted Sister‘s legendary vocalist Dee Snider has been sharing some undisclosed information about the much-anticipated AC/DC often on social media and in the interviews he joined.
Previously, Dee claimed a fascinating new AC/DC album was on its way which would also contain materials recorded while the band’s co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young was still alive. Moreover, Snider mentioned that AC/DC had been planning a new tour following the release of their new album.
Recently, Dee Snider joined an interview with Marci Wiser and shared another update on Brian Johnson’s healing process and the upcoming AC/DC album. According to Dee’s statements, Brian’s hearing loss has been getting better which might mean that he got his voice back.
Here’s what Dee Snider stated about the current status of Brian Johnson‘s hearing loss:
“Yeah, he’s back. His voice is back – not that his voice was gone, but he had this hearing problem, and yeah, I’m an OG AC/DC fan.”
Additionally, Dee mentioned that he had been one of the biggest fans of AC/DC even while they were playing only in Australia:
“I mean, I discovered them in Australia, and to see the classic lineup – you know, Cliff and Brian, Angus, and Philon drums… To see the classic lineup and know that they actually have tracks from Malcolm, actually getting the band on this record, it’s insane to think about it.”
